This service is useful for busy corporate or business individual that do not have have the time or patience to go to tailors and have design everything themselves or engage in the design process but would like to have custom-tailored suits, as well as those that do but for whatever reason want custom-tailored solutions for their casual and formal apparel. This is a home delivery and home operated service conducted by very dedicated professionals who have a massive amount of understanding between them and would like to expand their scope of service by differentiating it from others. This is done such that there is no store that one has to go to. Instead the designers visit their customers around the week and for new customers they conduct interviews and ask questions about work, likes and dislikes, personality and other related apparel issues. Then the designs are given to customers to choose and then final product is delivered.

In addition, the designers are best of friends and have great understanding between them hence helping them to form greater understanding of personality profiles and offering tailor-made solutions to apparel that are convenient to their customer base.
